Student Paramedics were able to put their newly learnt skills to the test with two vehicles very generously donated by RACV.

The two new vehicles include a Toyota hatchback and a Nissan people mover.  Equipment Officer Jo O’Reilly says the new vehicles are a perfect fit as the van allows for multi casualty training exercises, and the hatchback allows extrication training through the back of the hatch, when the front of the vehicle has major collision damage.

Simulated exercises that take the students out of the classroom are invaluable for learning and consolidation of skills, due to a more realistic environment, practising skills in real time and promoting reflection of practice.
